Expert comment on SABMiller’s fourth quarter results. John Colley, a Professor of Practice at Warwick Business School who researches mega mergers, has made the following statement:”SABMiller’s fourth quarter results have fully demonstrated the reasons why they became a $106Bn target for AB InBev. Volume growth in Latin America was 5% with Colombia hitting 8% whilst African volume growth was 6% over the year.”AB InBev had been struggling for growth in the USA and Europe where beer markets are stagnant to declining with craft beers making substantial inroads.”Overall SABMiller showed a similar pattern failing to grow in Europe over the year and registering a 1% volume decline in USA. However SABMiller’s strong positions in the growth markets of Africa and Latin America made them a target. “The results, whilst currency affected, are particularly positive in view of the major distraction defending the AB InBev bid would have been over the latter part of the year. The deal is expected to close during the second half of 2016.”
